CPM Holdings has opened its new state-of-the-art facility with a grand opening. The plant will serve animal feed, oilseed, alternative fuel, and other industries.

The new site in Waterloo, IA, produces a wide variety of equipment including pellet mills, flaking mills, hammermills, roller mills, pellet crumblers, and related aftermarket parts. The 172,960-sq.-ft building holds space for advanced manufacturing, modern workspaces and offices, testing and application development, and equipment and parts engineering and design. The facility houses 177 employees and led to the creation of 20 new jobs.

This isn't the first facility in Waterloo for the company. CPM has had operations in Waterloo since 1938.

The facility’s new state-of-the-art testing lab features a larger space for maneuverability and ease of use, upgraded ‘clean lab’ with private customer room, and wall-to-wall windows for full viewing of the testing area from the clean lab office area.
